Family mini cruise to Newcastle


Come on board and experience an exciting mini cruise with the whole family. Discover the wildlife of the North Sea during your crossing with our KING SEAWAYS from Amsterdam to Newcastle! Informative lectures by wildlife officers, various activities and wildlife watching on deck await you! The best thing is that your children travel free with this special offer.

The ORCA Wildlife Lounge is located only on the KING Seaways ferry. Therefore, you can only watch wildlife on selected days. But don't worry, it runs every other day and the date is clearly marked.

2 nights onboard

No baggage restrictions

Excellent onboard facilities

Travel period: until December 20, 2019


The Northern English city on the River Tyne offers a wide range of activities for young and old. How about a visit to the Life Science Center at the International Center for Life, a popular destination for the whole family. For the younger visitors, there is science to touch and experience in the Young Explorers Zone. Would you like to see a real T-Rex skeleton? Then you should definitely go to the Discovery Museum! The Eldon Square Shopping Center also has many shops - Fenwick's large toy department here. All attractions are within walking distance - ideal if you are traveling with children!

Onboard our ship

In addition to the Orca Wildlife Centre there are many more activities on board. There's Pirates' Island where kids can play, the coffee bar "Coffee Crew Café" offers the best coffee and the delicious evening buffet Explorer's Kitchen has something for everyone with a selection of international favorites. Give yourself and your family something from our exclusive range of perfume, cosmetics, toys and clothing, and in the evening return to the ORCA Lounge to hear exciting presentations or watch wildlife from the deck.

Your cabin

When traveling with the whole family, it is of course absolutely important that everyone can start the next morning refreshed. Our understated but cozy 4-Bed Standard Inside Cabins provide enough space for the whole family to gather new strength for the next day. And your luggage also travels with ease: on the return journey, you stay in the same cabin so your luggage stays in the cabin during your stay in Newcastle.
